Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a community-based dissemination conference on the topic of compulsive hoarding and to identify potential funding sources. This community-based conference will provide information and training on compulsive hoarding and the importance of community collaboration within Los Angeles County. An extensive literature review on compulsive hoarding was conducted to increase knowledge about compulsive hoarding, including the diagnostic criteria, prevalence, characteristics of hoarders, assessment tools, intervention and treatment strategies, and community collaboration. After searching for potential funding sources via the Internet, the California Endowment was selected as the best funding source for this grant proposal. The actual funding and submission of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
